X-Ray and CT Imaging Services
The Kodak Carestream 9300 digital scanner gives our oral and maxillofacial surgery practice state-of-the-art technology, enabling Dr. Strahs to diagnose issues more accurately than with conventional modalities. Unlike a traditional spiral CT scanner, this 3D system uses cone beam CT technology and provides precise, crystal-clear digital images while vastly minimizing your exposure to radiation by as much as 60%. This technology allows us to narrow the scanned area to the specific area of concern, further limiting your radiation exposure, providing unmatched visualization of anatomical detail, whether in 2D or 3D mode. This aids treatment planning and helps us to explain the particulars of your case and to answer your questions. Dr. Strahs also uses this innovative technology to quickly and easily share your images with your referring doctor - allowing both doctors to collaborate on your care, improving your experience, treatment, and outcome.

For Patients with Special Needs
Our office is equipped to deliver care to Special Needs Patients, those individuals who are physically, emotionally, or developmentally challenged. We are wheelchair-accessible from our front door, which is conveniently located next to an elevated parking lot in our medical building. The consultation room and every treatment room is wheelchair-accessible. Our consultation and surgical chairs have removable arms for ease of transfer of individuals from and to a wheelchair. The private recovery room has ample space for a relative, caregiver, or driver to spend time with the patient while the effects of anesthesia are diminishing and until the patient can be safely discharged to their home.
Our support staff is hired not only for their technical ability and training, but also for their caring and compassion.
